So, real talk.
I’ve read a lot of books in my day, but Abarat is probably the first book series that I’ve really, obnoxiously nerded out over. To like Harry Potter fan levels. If merchandise existed I’d probably own everything and I’d wind up on a buzzfeed video about “this ultimate fan who owns every single Abarat action figure what is her problem.” If there was an actual midnight opening for the upcoming book I’d probably be first in line. If Hot Topic sold Abarat t-shirts I would wear them.
Fortunately none of that exists so I can maintain some level of sanity.
But anyways thank you Clive Barker for making a book series I can finally get behind. Your welcome. Please release Kry Rising.
